Denounce Saddam Hussein's Execution
The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) issued the following statement on December 30, 2006.
THE Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) denounces the execution of Saddam Hussein. The hanging of Saddam Hussein will be condemned by all those who believe that an imperialist occupying power has no right to violate national sovereignty and dispense justice on those whom they have illegally overthrown.
The execution of Saddam Hussein will only increase the hatred for the United States among the Arab people and West Asia. President Bush and his cohorts will have to face the consequences of this illegal and criminal act perpetrated by its client government in Iraq.
The Polit Bureau calls upon all its Party units and democratic organisations to protest this heinous act.
The UPA government should realise that its strategic alliance with the Bush administration, which is notorious for its imperial aggrandisement, will harm India’s interests.
